Work It Wednesday: Gap Cropped Denim Parka

I love a good ol' All-American denim jacket just like every other girl-next-door, but unfortunately they just do not look right on me.  I've tried them because I desperately wanted one to work, but something about it just doesn't.  The boxy shape and collar make me look more like the boy-next-door.  Maybe if I had bigger boobs.  Who knows.  Now that I shared my denim jacket life story, let me share with you a new style of denim jacket I am (strangely?) crushing on: the cropped denim parka from Gap.  I think this just may work on me folks.  Here's why: the denim looks softer and slouchier ( no more box syndrome), and there is no collar (no more I-look-awful-in-collars syndrome).  I'm heading to my local Gap tomorrow with my 40% off coupon in hand to see if it will work in practice and not just in theory.  And since I like to jump the gun, here are three ways I would wear it if I had it:

  2. I wish I could rock the colored jeans trend. I fear I would look like a tanker in them. Boo. But I love these classic all-American looks you've pulled together here. They'll never go out of style!

  5. Please come shop with me. You are so good at this. That 2nd outfit is dreamy. I do love a denim jacket though, I rock mine a LOT. Except with jeans though, you'll be happy to know.
